The MBA Strategic Management and Leadership aims to develop individuals to lead and manage successfully and ethically at a strategic level across a range of organisations, and to formulate, implement and critically evaluate decisions. It will enable managers to develop leadership and analytical skills to support and influence strategic, tactical and operational aspects of a business, and enable practitioners to understand how the various management functions in a business integrate.
Who is the MBA for?
Our MBA is designed for practising managers who want to gain a generalist perspective on management. It has been developed for those wanting to develop their entrepreneurial and consultancy skills to progress in an established company or to set up an independent venture. It is an MBA for those who are serious about practice. We do not ask you to complete a dissertation instead we have a project module worth one third of the course's credits which enhances your entrepreneurship skills or your ability to act as a consultant to your own or another organisation.
